Product and Market Planning

For nearly three decades, DRGC has been the strategic thought partner for the biopharmaceutical and medtech industry's new product planning and business development teams helping to address key product and market planning questions with actionable insights. In addition to our focus on close collaboration and open communication with our clients, our success is driven by a deep understanding of the nuances of relevant markets, products, and therapeutic areas, which inform realistic, targeted and data-driven recommendations.

Through a broad range of research techniques (e.g., primary and secondary research, qualitative and quantitative methods), we partner with our clients to assess the commercial potential of candidates in development and provide strategic and tactical insights and recommendations for in-licensing, development and commercial strategy, and product positioning and segment targeting.

Holistic approach

We determine the attractiveness of relevant markets with the goal of identifying critical success factors for maximizing return on investment and potential for commercial success. Our holistic approach considers a range of factors such as the competitive environment and commercial potential in each indication or market at launch, development timelines/launch timing, pricing/sales potential, market access, development risk, and overall product lifecycle opportunities.
